WordPress is known for being one of the most popular blogging platforms today. Not many people realise that it is also a simple but powerful Content Management System that you can use to build your website on. In fact 8.9% of all websites in the world are WordPress.
Here are 7 good reasons why you should use WordPress:
The intuitive, user-friendly backend of WordPress means it’s easy to update content without any knowledge of HTML. You can easily create new pages or edit existing ones using a rich text editor.
The great thing about WordPress is that it is built on simple and accessible technologies, which means that your site will be accessible across most platforms; ie. iPhones, Blackberries, Android, Windows, Mac OS, etc.
WordPress has good SEO functions integrated into its backend and most of it is free. Even Matt Cutts from Google compliments WordPress on how it is “made to do SEO well.”
WordPress has an incredibly smooth and thorough implementation of plugin functionalities. They allow you to add functions such as shopping carts, contact forms, photo galleries, sliders, forums, polls, maps and other features without having extensive web development costs.
With thousands of customisable WordPress themes to choose from, you can create an awesome website at a very reasonable price. Also, themes are independent from your content, so you can change your theme at any time whilst maintaining your existing content and functionality.
Because WordPress has made it so easy to upgrade new features and security, your site can easily grow with you over the years. You can add a new theme without having to rebuild your whole website, or add new features to accommodate the growth of your business.
It is incredibly easy to update WordPress for security and new functionality. When a new version is made available, WordPress sends you a link for an easy one-click upgrade. Don’t forget to back up your site before installing anything.
